Restore Rockport: How Can I Help?
Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Response
Prayer should always be at the top of our list. Pray for those that are currently helping with the recovery. We also need to ask God to allow is presence and love to be revealed to all those affected by this disaster.
Restore Rockport – Woodlawn has several connections and available lodging in the Rockport area and as a result, it provides a natural connection for Woodlawn to go and partner with churches in Rockport. We will be working with leadership in Rockport to determine where we can meet the need for families and be the most effective.

Woodlawn will be sponsoring two trips to Rockport November 6th-12th and December 16th-22nd. There is a house in Rockport where our teams will be staying. It can hold up to 15 people.

Texas Baptist Men - You can give to the Texas Baptist Men to help with Disaster Relief. 100% of your money will go toward disaster relief. TBM are one of the first groups that will respond to disasters. They will set up kitchens to feed the first responders and victims. Eventually, as recovery begins, they will send in different crews to dispose of fallen trees and to work in the homes. Here is a link to give to Texas Baptist Men. www.texasbaptistmen.org/give-now
